The problem is a Kevin Costner film quote that stuck in everyone’s head – “If you build it they will come.” This is really bad advice. Inspiring musicians and artists are wasting their time complaining about the artists that are on the radio or the artists that are successful in the business. How many times have you heard a local rapper or band say that they make better music than the successful artist in the business? How… Read More »

For me, one of the best memories during the holidays was reading books as a family. Of course, I believe you should do this year-round, but it is a great tradition to instill for your children. You could even replace that story you read at bedtime every single night with one of these great books. Your kids may protest at the change in story, but your sanity (yes, we all know you now hate that stinking curious monkey) will thank you. You’re welcome. 1. How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss The Grinch, who lives on the top of… Read More »

Many consider Relapse to be Eminem’s weakest effort. He had a couple of hits from it but it wasn’t a huge hit the way MMLP1 or The Eminem Show was. Yes, it went double platinum but the quality of the album was, according to some fans on the Internet, lackluster. But after coming off of listening to The Marshall Mathers LP 2 and wanting to go back an listen to his back catalog, So So Active presents ten interesting facts about Eminem’s Relapse.

Yes, most of them are at least a decade old, but that’s why they’re so good! A Christmas Story: All this boy wants for Christmas is a B.B. gun, his only problem is convincing his… Read More »
By Adam McCully Thanksgiving comes late this year – November 28th to be exact – and if you’re like me, you’ll spend the better part of the day after Thanksgiving in a turkey and red wine induced coma. However, if you’re one of those productive people that like to get things done, you’re probably all geared up to go Black Friday shopping this year! I’ve worked in retail, and out of respect for those unfortunate souls that still do, I usually steer clear of all that madness. Then again, you can’t argue with a bargain, and with all the new… Read More »

You’ve worked so hard for that flat tummy that it almost seems a waste to throw it away on one day of gorging. You… Read More »
By now, if you’re a fan of music and music websites, or at least a troller of popular music news websites, blogs and online magazines, you’re well aware of the latest fight between the NMPA (National Music Publishers Association), RapGenius, the extremely popular lyric-based website for basically all things in terms of Hip Hop lyrics, and 49 other lyric websites that have been targeted by NMPA as being “blatantly illegal”.
